“Beautiful little gem in the medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Chile and Enrique are the best restaurant owners I have ever met!
Fun, honest, sincere, loving and warm :)
A simple cafe turned out to be one of the most interesting adventure we ve had on this trip !
Enjoy their fresh juices, or their yummy sandwiches, the foamy coffee or just the nice music and the company of beautiful poeple :)

“Don't be surprised if you saw Ginger cafe the Number One on tripadvisor !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

It is the SSS place: Small, Simple, Sincere. Don't expect anything fancy about this place, you just go in, order the best sandwich ever, made by the most sincere woman, and play the simplest game ever.
We had one of the most interesting conversation with the owner. We left the place feeling that we were on another planet!!!
A must visit in the old medina souk

“Do not miss this place ! Juicy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A great place! Different from the other restaurants in Essaouira. Small restaurant but very well decorated with beautiful vivid colors in lush white. The welcome is warm! I am a fan of the Lebanese salad. Everything is very fresh and tasty. I love carrot cake to finish and the juices are fresh and very good. Try this at gigembre! delicious!
I have yet to taste the little sandwiches! it will give me the opportunity to come back! with great pleasure!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

So glad we found this place when we did! After travelling from marrakesh we were craving healthy food so badly that we could have ordered their whole menu at once. We ended up going back every morning for breakfast while we were in essaouira. Everything we ordered was always delicious and fresh. The couple who own ginger are so friendly and really interesting to chat to, really inspirational!
